2 Topics Some information about Brazil Current state of the Brazilian network (ipê f5&6, metro, int'l links, CLARA) Circuit services in support of e-science and culture Service development: working groups Testbed networks and Future Internet a brief look at the Brazilian NREN2

3 3 Introduction to Brazil In 1494 Spain and Portugal divided American territory between themselves by the Treaty of Tordesillas –The Tordesillas Line became the frontier between Spain (West) and Portugal (East) Former Portuguese dominions in South America became Brazil –Brazilians speak Portuguese –Rather over one half of present Brazil lies to the WEST of the Tordesillas Line Brazil is a BIG place! –84% of the size of all Europe –=> problems of building fibre infrastructure quickly –26 states + capital district Current population of about 190 millions, unevenly distributed –most of the population and infrastructure concentrated to the EAST of the Tordesillas Line Tordesillas Line to Spain to Portugal

4 RNP - the Brazilian NREN - timeline 1989 Began as a project of the Brazilian Ministry of Science & Technology (MCT), to link universities and labs 1992 First IP network with links at 9.6 and 64 kbps connected 11 capitals, and linked to the US at Fermilab RNP supported the launch of the commercial Internet in Brazil, and carried commercial traffic for 4 years RNP became a non-profit company to serve only the research and education, through a management contract with MCT and the Ministry of Education (MEC) 2000 ATM and FR network with links at 10s of Mbps 2002 Recognised as a “Social Organisation” (like a Quango), which allows contracts with the government without tender 2005 First Gbps (2.5 and 10) links in network 2009 First 10G international link 2010 Links to over 300 institutions, including 130 universities a brief look at the Brazilian NREN4

5 IPÊ – RNP’s national R&E backbone network Last major upgrade in 2005 Next one in 2010 (see next slide) Capacity reflects available and affordable carrier infrastructure Currently composed of: Multigigabit core network –4 PoPs at 10 Gbps, and 6 PoPs at 2.5 Gbps –IP over lambdas ( km) Terrestrial SDH connections to 15 PoPs –Most links are 34 Mbps –Manaus at 20 Mbps –Some upgrades to 155, 257 and 622 Mbps 2 PoPs connected by satellite at 4 and 6 Mbps a brief look at the Brazilian NREN5

6 National backbone planned for 4Q2010 Agreement with local telco Oi, brokered by regulatory agency 3 and 10 Gbps to reach 24 of 27 capitals Hybrid architecture, supporting routed IP and e2e circuit traffic a brief look at the Brazilian NREN6

7 Redecomep: Community-based optical metropolitan networks Since 2004, RNP program of metropolitan networks, to provide adequate access to the multigigabit backbone –Model influenced by Canarie and Surfnet experiences –Funding provided by MCT, plus from state and city governments and private R&E participants Networks are based on overprovisioned dark fiber networks, shared between the R&E institutions served –Usually built and owned by RNP –Use 1 or 10 GE transport and permit: interconnection of the campi of the participating institutions access to RNP´s IPÊ network PoP 16 networks already operating –All 27 capital city metro networks by end

8 Status Redecomep (4Q2009) Rede Metropolitana de Curitiba Rede Metropolitana de São Luís networks already in operation networks in operation by 2Q2010 networks in operation by 4Q2010 The stage of development of Metro Networks (Redecomep) a brief look at the Brazilian NREN8

9 Pilot network Belém, Pará 12 institutions with 32 campi each institution has its own pair of fibers (for internal connectivity) 30 km ring (48 fibres) 10 km extension to Ananindeua (36 fibres) 12 km access links (6 fibres) Institution A Institution C Institution B RNPPoP to IPÊ network a brief look at the Brazilian NREN9

10 : Brazil int’l connectivity RedCLARA: regional R&E network in Latin America –Created 2004 with partial funding by EU (ALICE project) –Linked up to 14 countries in region (currently 13) –155 Mbps backbone, with 622 Mbps Brazil-GEANT b/b upgraded to 622 Mbps in 2009 (RedCLARA2) WHREN-LILA (US IRNC1 project) – NSF + FAPESP funds –Provides 2 links to RedCLARA network since 2005 West Coast to Pacific Wave from Mexico, uses d ark fiber to from CUDI (Tijuana) to UCSD East Coast to AMPATH from Brazil (São Paulo) initially 1.2 Gbps, since 2007 at 2.5 Gbps –Also used for GLIF link to Brazil networks since 2008 >3 Gbps of commodity transit in Brazil via int’l ISP a brief look at the Brazilian NREN10

11 2009 int’l upgrades to 20 Gbps In 2009, change of model for link to US –Carry commodity and R&E traffic on same link –Buy commodity transit in US (much cheaper) –With savings invest in larger pipe to US (10Gu ≈ $2.5/yr) Result: –upgrade to 20 Gbps of S. Paulo-Miami link 10 Gbps (FAPESP + NSF) a.k.a. ANSP link - (1+0) protection 10 Gbps (RNP) - unprotected thus: 5 G protected and 15 G unprotected –2 links jointly managed by RNP and ANSP Use protected path for RedCLARA2 and commodity Use unprotected path for “large-scale” scientific collaboration Cable cut (Atlantic) on Jan 28th, 2010: TTR ~30 days a brief look at the Brazilian NREN11

12 RedCLARA2 – October 2009 ALICE2 (with EU) is increasing the capacity of links within LA –backbone 622 Mbps (1 Gbps between S. Paulo and Miami through Brazilian links) –access links 155 Mbps a brief look at the Brazilian NREN12

29 GIGA Phase 2: Future Internet testbed The original project was funded until 2007 New project submitted by RNP and CPqD to fund future testbed activity In 2009, CPqD once more funded by Funttel, and RNP via MCT RNP will extend testbed to up to 24 states from 2011 In this phase focus on Future Internet experimentation International relations with GENI, OpenFlow and, we hope, with EU projects Coordinated calls Brazil-EU in Future Internet in 2010: –Experimental facilities –Security a brief look at the Brazilian NREN29

30 Other developments Some Brazilian states are building out long-distance optical networks, usually partnering electrical companies The RedClara2 (Latin American regional network), with financial support from RNP, is acquiring cross- border fibre supporting 10G links interconnecting Brazil to Chile and Argentina in 2010, and probably also to Paraguay and Uruguay in 2011 It is expected that these links will also provide lightpath connections from Brazil to these countries a brief look at the Brazilian NREN30

31 Conclusion RNP has reached its present state of development in a stable environment of government support for its current model of operation Since 2000, the network has been continuously improved, both in capacity and capillarity, to be able to offer Gbps links to most of its institutional clients At the same time RNP has increased its international activities, collaborating with sister networks in many countries, and providing conditions for effective internal collaboration by its users a brief look at the Brazilian NREN31
